Hello to all,

I have last version of photoshop CC 21 (22.4.1) using on M1 mac mini 16gb and there is very strange bug with this effect Render-Lighting Effects. There is no curcle lines to control the effect like old versions of PS and when you zoom in/zoom out image, the effect crashing and you can't control with properties slides too. You can see my screenshots. 

Hope you can help me to fix this because I using often this effect.
Thank you in advance!

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop while trying to use the Lighting Effect on the M1 Mac mini. Would you mind telling us which macOS version are you working on?

 

You can try going to the Preferences of Photoshop, then Technology Previews & check (enable) the option to Deactivate Native Canvas. Once done, quit & relaunch Photoshop to check if it helps.

 

PS deactivate native canvas.png

That's strange! You can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3

Please backup your settings prior to resetting the preferences. You can check: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

If the issue still persists, please try rolling back to the previous version of Photoshop as suggested by gener7. Please uninstall the latest version of Photoshop first & select the option to Keep Preferences prior to installing the previous version.

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

I can suggest rolling back to Ps 2021/v22.3  Lighting Effects worked for me there.

I'm having the same problem on Windows and actually it's not just the Light Effects, but also the blur gallery effects, they're all without the visual controllers.

The problem still there, can you explain me if I downgrade to PS 22.3 like "gener7" said, is it also optimise for m1 or just the final/last version is optimised for the new chip. Thank you in advance! 22.4.2 the problem still there.

Hi,

 

Photoshop 22.3 does have native support for the M1 processors. You can roll back to the 22.3 version & check if you observe the same behavior or if it helps. Please uninstall the latest version of Photoshop first & select the option to Keep Preferences prior to installing the previous version.

Nikunj

As I understand, you can run Photoshop's Intel binary under Rosetta2 in the M1 cpu.

First you must install Rosetta2 in order to have that option available if you don't see the Rosetta checkbox under Get Info in Big Sur using Cmd-i on Photoshop's app. Perhaps the function will return running in Intel mode.

I have the same issue on my Mac, which is from late 2014, so no Apple chip. 

  • No controls to change lighting spots
  • After abort, image is not shown correctly (background is light instead of black etc.), zooming in and out fixes that

 

This is an even later version of Photoshop, 22.4.3 – I wonder why the issue hasn’t been fixed, yet.
